Services: International Growth, Shale Changes

By Elliott H. Gue on Aug. 2, 2019

The rapid growth in US shale fields like the Permian Basin has dramatically altered the outlook for global oil supply and demand.

It’s also forever changed the industry’s competitive landscape at all levels including upstream (producers), downstream (refiners) and midstream (pipelines and storage).

However, arguably the industry to see the largest impact is oilfield services – these companies are in the business of supplying mission-critical services and equipment to global oil producers related to the exploration and development of oilfields.

Some five years ago, we warned that these changes would not be kind to erstwhile high-flyers like deepwater driller Seadrill and sand miner Hi-Crush Partners.

However, the selling pressure has extended far beyond these shaky names to include some of the industry’s largest and most enduring franchises. In this issue we take a closer look at some of the trends and changes underway in the global oil industry and how to play it.
